CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- The family of Keith Lamont Scott, the man shot and killed by a Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police officer in September, watched hours of previously-unreleased dash cam and body cam video Tuesday.
Scott's family requested to see the videos in their entirety, and CMPD said they intended to accommodate that request this week. The family had been asking for the release of the video for weeks.
Though they're not ready to address the public, the family did send their attorneys to address the videos at a news conference Tuesday evening.
After watching the video, attorneys for Keith Scott says there are still a lot of questions.
The video hasn't brought the family any clarification, the attorneys said, as it's still too hard to see if Keith Scott did, in fact, have a gun-- and if he did, as police have said, the family doesn't believe police had a justifiable reason to shoot him.
"It's very difficult to watch. It's difficult for a wife to watch, and what you’re seeing is real life. There are real life consequences to the decision that an officer makes to pull the trigger," attorney Justin Bamberg said.
